How to Find Space to Create
by Sally Evans.
Do you live in a small house or apartment with no room to work on making jewelry?
Do you get everything out to work, spread it on the kitchen or dining room table, and have to put it all away when it’s time to eat? Or maybe you leave it out and live with the constant clutter.
Spending your precious time setting up and putting away supplies can leave you with little time to actually work – and that’s frustrating.
Ideas for Creating a Space for
Your Jewelry Studio
Jewelry studio in a closet –
If you have a closet that is storing things you really never use, consider transforming it into a workspace. You can install simple shelves, a drop down table top, and a rolling cart to create a small studio. Close the doors when it’s not in use.
Jewelry studio in a corner –
You can do the same thing with a corner of a room, and hide your studio behind a pretty folding screen. You could even hang some artwork on the screen and create a piece of art. Or you can even hang some fabric or curtains from the ceiling to create an enclosed hidden workspace.
Mobile jewelry studio –
You can put a table on wheels, maybe a narrow couch table, that has a shelf underneath to store your supplies in labeled boxes. Just roll the table out from behind the couch when you’re ready to use it. Or you could have a table that is covered with a nice tablecloth and your supplies are stored underneath it. Take off the tablecloth when you’re ready to play.
Jewelry studio elsewhere –
Rent or trade studio space in someone else’s business, warehouse, or home. This especially applies if you need to use a lot of equipment that would be difficult to haul out each time you want to work.
But it’s also a nice solution if you need a place with fewer distractions than your home. Do you know a neighbor who has an unused room, basement, garage, or enclosed porch?
